Unusual Huguenin watch marked Hoguenin with an "o" Need Info

#1 Post by archy1865 » Sat Dec 02, 2017 3:47 pm

Face clearly says "Hoguenin", but movement is stamped "Huguenin 17 jewels." Back of case says "4019 3" and inside of case has some writing (not in English) and then "920675". End of winder is broke off, but I was able to wind with fingernails and it is very quiet. It is also slender. Has anyone heard of such a thing? I can't find any references to "Hoguenin" anywhere. I'd almost think it was a bad fake with Huguenin misspelled, but it seems to be a nice watch. I would appreciate any info including history lesson and possible worth. Thank you.

I know nothing about Huguenin, so I have no opinion as to whether it's legitimate. But if it is, then I would assume the misspelled name is the result of a carelessly done redial.
